Rosalina Is Playable Character In Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo of America have confirmed that the lovely Rosalina will be the unlockable, fifth playable character in the upcoming Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U. Super Mario 3D World recently scored very highly in Japanese gaming publication Famitsu. The game is due for release on November 22nd in the United States.


    1. Does anybody even care about rosalina. She’s a side character, a nobody. She’s like waluigi, toadette, those stupid things that live on delfino island, etc. What I do like though is that there might be more unlockable characters. I also noticed she has an attack while walking/running so I wonder if that’s her wearing the cat suit or she has a different play style.

      1. Her involvement in the Mario galaxy game felt less like a “hub/tutorial guide” and more like an overseer, and a character who is directly involved in the galaxy lore. That is if you attend her sessions at the library. Waluigi is probably the least involved character in anything, at least Daisy was in one of the games. feel free to correct me if I’m wrong though, I’m not too familiar with waluigi.

      2. No you’re absolutely right and yes she is part of the galaxy lore and that’s it. Much like the piantas are part of sunshine and that’s where they die.

      3. I care about her. She’s been a favorite of mine since Galaxy. It was nice to see her in Mario Kart Wii/7. She def needs to be in more Mario games. I’m hoping she’s in Smash, but that may be a long shot. One can hope.

      4. Hell some people like toadette. I’m not disputing that. All I’m saying is there are far more important characters they could have added like yoshi for example. Honestly I’d rather play as a goomba then rosalina.

      5. You just acted like you weren’t ousting Rosalina, yet when you say you think more deserving characters deserved to be played as, you mention Goomba. Your personal bias becomes clear. You don’t like Rosalina. Well, guess what? She’s playable. Get over it.

      6. Lol I’m not gonna lose any sleep about her being playable. She’s had a big role in what 1 game? She’s not really a main part of galaxy 2. She’s in the kart games but who isn’t.

    2. is there a way to contact the moderator of this stupid ass site, i come for news here, not spoilers, fuck this shit, they do this every time

      1. That would be cool, but I don’t see that happening in this game. If Rosalina has to be unlocked in some way, as a “hidden” character, it would only be logical for it to be more; why would Nintendo reveal the only hidden character?

    1. Ignoring the women in Street Fighter, Tekkeon, Resident EvIl, Mortal Kombat, X-Men and KI. But because Mario 3D World is by Nintendo, suddenly you question why you want to play as a women and ignoring that Mario, Luigi and Toad are males.

      1. bubbles is just trying to be a sexist dolt. Especially considering that roughly half of all gamers are female… yes, even in hardcore genres too….
        Also considering SuperMario2 had peach playable with each player having respective powerups. Great move to add more depth to the game if they follow this line… great move even if they dont.

    2. I agree with you to a point. While it doesn’t bother me that you can play as peach or rosalina in this game it does bother me when they have female characters in games like tomb raider running around beating up men. Fighting games are ridiculous in this aspect too however fighting games aren’t exactly going for realism where games like tomb raider, COD ghosts where you can play as a female online, and grand theft auto are.


      1. Will what team in Nintendo puts the trailers of these games available online? Why not use that team to advertise on TV instead of the marketing team for TV. Hell if the trailer showing games on the shop look good.

  2. I guess I’d better eat my hat. I’d been saying that there was no way that she would be playable. Well, I guess we can all but confirm her for Smash Bros 2 (2018). I don’t think that she’ll be in this one since it’s basically a remake of Brawl, but once the next one hits (3DS exclusive) things should get real. She’s a pretty cool character so its cool to see her get some props

    1. Smash bros 2?uuuh don’t u mean 5. Remake of brawl? I didn’t know mega man was in brawl or wii fit trainer, or villager. Wouldn’t bowser be the same too? They total redesign him. Are u drunk sir

      1. Ignoring Wind Walker debuted first and according to you “remake” smash is taking a lot longer.

      2. Ignoring you just conflicted with yourself. Remakes don’t need redesigns. But according to you, Smash is a remake of brawl.

      3. No, since they’re just calling this one Smash Bros 3DS, I think that the next one will be Super Smash Bros 2. Mega Man=Snake and we have some new characters, but that’s like Mega Man and Mega Man Powered Up. New features, same game. Nintendo is putting a lot of effort into it, but it’s basically a remake…minus story mode

      4. Sure. And 24 hours ago you didn’t know Rosalina was a playable a character. Who’s the 4th character on Tropical Freeze? Better yet name me allllllll the unlock able Smash bros. Characters not the ones we already know but the ones we don’t know. Or are you 100% sure that the unlock able characters are allllllllll unveiled and there won’t be more? Which one is it?

      5. There will be new characters (Of course) but the overall character count will still be around 35 characters since they’re limiting it for the 3DS. With mostly the same modes and the same characters, I’d totally call it a remake. Like Mario Galaxy and Mario Galaxy 2,

        As for Smash Bros, they’ll probably confirm Jigglypuff and Meta Knight next :p

      6. not so sure about meta knight, as that one is not taken for granted. i think they will anounce Ness or Zelda first

      7. Well, I’ll definitely be happy to have Ness on board. He’s a veteran character and he’s always fun to play. I’m surprised that they’ve waited so long to show him

      8. Words cannot express how incredibly short sighted and wrong you are. Megaman equals Snake? They play NOTHING alike. It’s like saying Street Fighter 4 is like Street Fighter 2. They don’t look, play, or feel the same. Not one single Smash Bros game looks, plays, or feels like the previous, and this will be no exception. Just wow.

    2. Ignoring its possible since for Rosalina to be in Smash Bros since she was in Galaxy. Also ignoring you having played or really seen smash but on screenshots and an trailer 6 months ago how you know its a remake before knowing alllllll the unlock able characters, stages and new online and better ways to create stages not even unveiled yet.

      1. They haven’t shown them because there won’t be many more new characters. Maybe 2-3 total, but the rest will be more Brawl rehashes

      2. or maybe they just want to keep them secret until closer to launch or even after launch

      3. Right about what? Judging a game you know little of? So what’s Zelda u about? Tell me the story.

      4. Zelda U is about Link as he goes on a quest to find the latest magical artefacts and awaken the deities so that they can help him restore the triforce, he’ll get the Master Sword destroy Ganon and then we’ll wait for the next reboot/remake/sequel

      5. Ignoring that Twilight Princes story was about keeping Ganaon from coipming from the Dark Word and Skyward Sword’s story was completely different. So again what’s the story about in Zelda U?

      6. Sakurai even took out tripping and said the balnce of the game will between brawl and melee, but making the 3ds version was a stupid idea

      7. no that’s what we call ur opinion. Never Heard Sakurai say it was remake of brawl. I guess street fighter IV is remake of 3 and 3 is remake of 2 lol

      8. Those have actual plots which is why they aren’t remakes. This Smash Game won’t even have a story mode so that basically means that it will be a remake. Personally, that’s how I’d see it

      9. So if a sequel fighting game doesn’t have story its remake? Cool story bro. SBB didn’t have a story and neither did melee so melee is remake of brawl? You don’t seem to under the stand term remake when comes gaming

      10. Perhaps I don’t. Either way, I feel that they should be making more of an effort to differentiate this game from Brawl. Perhaps, we will get more news to help this fact by the next Nintendo Direct, but there is no excusing the title

        *understand the*

      11. Not an effort? If it wasn’t an effort then why is it taking so long? How you know its not an effort? Was your arm hurting and you needed to go to the doctor?

      12. My arm hasn’t hurt for a long time. I remember when I was a kid, it hurt because I kept my arm bent for too long. It was a habit from holding my backpack from the straps. Anyway, I didn’t say that they weren’t putting an effort so let’s not pull a strawman. I just said that they should put more effort into making it different from previous versions.

      13. Yet you conflicted with yourself since Twilight Princess and Wind Walker have actual plot but according to you it’s a remake. Also ignoring Mortal Kombat 1-4. Same characters just like Super Smash but since Mortal Kombat ain’t Nintendo it can be a rehash.

      1. So why are you complaing about this Smash bros game you say is a remake? If they added bloood you’d complain if they kept the same characters you’d complain.

      2. I’m not mad that it’s a remake, just a little disappointed. I’d be horrified if it had blood because I’d have to jump through a lot of hoops to play it. It wouldn’t be tough to convince everyone to buy it, but I prefer not to play games that contain blood

      3. Smash 4 is not a remake of brawl! It’s idiots like you who went around telling people Albw was a remake of Alttp. Learn the difference between a remake and a sequel and stop spouting nonsense from your fingertips.

    1. ive been holding myself with you but maaaan you are making it so hard, your gravatar picture is a fucking lion with red eyes , RED EYES, STOP pretending you are a hardcore macho man, maybe we are excited about this game but at least we aren’t so childish to have A FUCKING LION WITH RED EYES, as a profile picture

      1. Pink Floyed shhhhhhhh don’t feed the lions at the zoo they always come back bitching.

    2. Smash bros a kiddy game? I didn’t know that. So I guess All Stars wasn’t. So why didn’t enough of you hardcore buy All Stars so PS4 could get All Stars 2?

      1. Really Rated T? So why didn’t hardcore buy All Stars if Smash Bros is sooo baby according to the Lion from the Zoo.

    3. Here is a qoute for you Croxynd

      “Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

      1. I don’t think you understand what you just wrote, otherwise you wouldn’t have written it as response to my comment.

  3. “Rosalina is playable character…”
    me: frick yeah Rosalina in smash bros
    “…in super mario 3D world”
    me: …

  4. Rosalina, omg YES! How didn’t I realized if she were playable she would use the spin attack from galaxy, haha.
    This game keeps getting better and better.

  5. I love Rosalina voice. Sounds like she is about to get fucked in the ass.. but she is a pro at it and she know it.

  6. As a much as I’d like her in Smash like the next guy, it wouldn’t feel right if she made it in over more important and popular characters like Bowser Jr. and Toad. She would be a great assist trophy, though.

  7. Oh hell yes! I like Rosalina more than Daisy and Peach and Rosalina has been my favorite since the Galaxy games and it’s great to see her in a main title other than spin-offs. I love the Gusty Garden theme they played for her part of the trailer, and I think I’ll use her more often once I unlock her. Hope she’s in Mario Kart 8 and it may be a long shot but I also want to see her in Smash Bros.

  8. It’s awesome that the game has 2 female characters to play as now. Sweet! The main thing that always bugged me about Rosalina is that she looks SO much like Peach. I kinda wish they would have made her look different.
